Scandinavian interior design is admired the world over
for its unpretentious simplicity and understated elegance.
Rooms are typically airy, light, and bright. Furnishings
are modern design classics from iconic Scandinavian
designers (Hans Wegner, Poul Kjaerholm, Arne Jacobsen,
and Marimekko, to name a few) mixed with attractive
antique and vintage pieces.
The 20 structures featured in this book are presented
as case studies, with chapters including Elegant
Simplicity, Vintage-Inspired, Pared-down Modern, and
Contemporary Rustic. Each site showcases an aspect
of Scandinavian interior design and the owners include architects, fashion, and jewelery
designers, and antique dealers. The accompanying text offers a fascinating insight into
each building, describing its design, planning, and evolution. Celebrating a way of life that
combines elegance and comfort with a strong love of the natural world, Simply Scandinavian
offers an abundance of decorative ideas that will work in any setting.
